I got halfway through it and was really bored. Though I'm sure I'll finish it at some point. Beautiful to look at, it made too many unnecessary side trips (Peter Kirk, Karg?).
Plus Kirk seems awfully combative right off the bat, for no real reason.
I agree about the boring part, near the end I almost fell asleep. It was one of the most boring scenes I have ever seen in their films. The special effects I thought were fantastic though and it is a good concept on the whole.
